SUNDERLAND took advantage of the call-offs to climb into the top six of the Premier League and William Hill are betting on where they will end the season.
The offer 5-2 they will finish in seventh or eighth and the same price ninth or 10th. Eighth looks a possibility on current form with Steve Bruce doing a great job at the Stadium of Light.
For top four it's 25-1, fifth or sixth pays 5-1, 11th or 12th 10-3 and 13th or lower 6-1.
Meanwhile, Hills go 5-6 Avram Grant will still be West Ham manager on January 1, 2011 and 5-6 he will not. The Hammers' display in a 1-1 draw at Blackburn was an improvement but Grant apparently has to win one of his next two matches to survive.
West Ham are 15-8 favourites to finish bottom of the table with Hills who also offer 3-1 Wigan, 10-3 Wolves, 11-2 Blackpool, 16-1 Fulham and 20-1 Birmingham.
Grant has been cut from 4-9 to 2-5 favourite to be the next Premier League boss to go this season by Hills who also offer 4-1 Roy Hodgson, 7-1 Carlo Ancelotti, 8-1 Mick McCarthy; Roberto Mancini.
